    I joined this RP when I found interest. I did not expect it to take us all into such an amazing emotional roller coaster, but I do not regret a single moment of it. This RP has ended up helping me in so many things; from stress, character development, writing, lessons made and learn. I will never forget this RP, nor any of you or your characters which all made this story so amazing from beginning to end. This is a story I will always remember, and I thank every single one of you for it. To our next RP, and to wherever the future takes us! Let's have fun guys!

    Truly, it has been an honour and a privilege to have participated in Overworld all the way to its completion. I've had my own moments, my failings, lessons learned, but it has been an overall amazing experience. And I cannot thank you enough for making it possible in the first place, Mystics. And all of you as well! Thank you, you beautiful bastards. Here's to our next RP together!

    Thank you everyone who has participated and joined on this adventure. All of your characters have made great contributions, and none of it would have been the same without each and every one of your characters. Even those who did not finish with us made an impact on the story, which I am very grateful for. I hope that we all RP together again in the near future, whether it be in Elrandir's upcoming sequel, or someone else's RP entirely. You all are the best, and it has been my pleasure weaving this story with you all. Until next time!

    What a journey it has been for all of us. I feel that this RP has made me a better writer, and always was an escape from the stress of reality. It has been fun RP’ing with all of those who participated. Here’s hoping our next adventures go well.

    Agreed! Thank you all! I am still slowly working on what is next. Hopefully I can make something out of those ideas as we continue to move forwards in the history of Overworld.

    I for one agree entirely! Overworld has been a marvelous project for all of us, and I am proud to have been an instrument in its success. Thank you all for your hard work, dedication, and boundless fun, everyone. It would not have been the same without you. As an old friend would say, " o7 ".

    Oh~ Another project? Sounds like more fun could be on the way! Good-bye Overworld! You gave us almost three years of fun! And for that I am grateful to all who took part in it.

    Thanks for letting me know, guys. : ). Since this is the official end of the RP I'm not in a huge hurry to wrap things up, so I am okay with waiting for a bit for you guys to finish writing your scenes if everyone agrees that this is the best course of action. I am thinking about possibilities for a future project, though I am not sure when I would start it up (and I don't think Overworld's closure will affect anything) I am, however, going to mark this RP as complete since it is essentially just pending final epilogues from characters. I can't believe that it is actually happening after all of this time. *sniff*. Goodbye, role-play.

    In a steampunk era of an alternate 19th century, order within the land of Regalia has been ordained by the power of the four courts all following a unified law: Ignis, Somnum, Vivifica, and Umbra. The high priestess, Mabel, acts as an intermediary between them, passing upon her blessings and represents the non-magical folk of Regalia. These four courts are run by mages: individuals gifted with the forbidden art of magic that is both a mystery and a curse to those within Regalia. A mage either lives a life of success and luxury, exalted by the masses within one of the courts, or must struggle to survive in the world on their own, unpracticed and unwieldy. The courts aid a mage in harnessing their raw magic and potential. An untrained mage is both useless and dangerous, and it is very hard for a mage to thrive on their own without a court to affiliate with. If one is found with a lot of magical potential, a court may come and present an offer to the mage, or this individual may go to one of the courts and prove themselves worthy of joining their ranks. For centuries the land of Regalia has known naught but peace and prosperity, thanks to the order driven by the four courts, but what happens when one of them goes rogue? The Vivifica court has cut ties with the other three courts, and has been abandoning the laws and teachings that all the courts have vowed to uphold to. Further, Vivifica has been found dealing with Itika, raw mana found within the Valley of Magic that has been banned from Regalia. What reason could they have for doing this, and will the court have to be abolished? As you dig to answer this question, more questions may begin to unravel, causing you to question the very foundation that you have always known. Technology abounds in Regalia, though it is powered via steam, and it is within the limitations of the 19th century. Guns (and gun blades) are present, as well as electricity, trains, and telephone booths, though cars are yet to be invented. You can be a mage from one of the courts, or perhaps you are a mage who has decided to try to fight the odds and remain independent in the world. You may also not even be gifted with magic, living a normal life in Regalia until something about the courts causes you to change your mode of living for a bit more excitement. Each mage court has its own set of characteristics. Depending on what sort of a mage you are and your morals, you would be best suited for one of the following. While one mage court may specialize in a certain type of magic, it is not required that you be in that court. If your personality, say, fits Umbra but you have healing magic, you could choose Vivifica and not fit int, or you could choose to stay in Umbra because it suits your nature, yet you will not be proficient in healing magic because you are untrained in it. If you are uncertain where your character would best fit you are welcome to leave this field blank and I’d happily choose a good fit. Descriptions for each court are as follows: Ignis: The only court that believes in balance and actively teaches the art of the sword. The Ignis court is among the most duty bound, desirous to bring justice to the world and always do the right thing. Mages in the Ignis court specialize in fire and earth magic, often used to enhance their physical abilities and strength. Umbra: Well-versed in necromancy and dark arts, the Umbra Court believes in living life to the fullest. These mages tend to be more self-centered and cater to their own needs as opposed to helping others. They tend to focus on the pleasures of life rather than have ambitious goals to aid in their society. Vivifica: The mages in this court specialize in white and holy magic, though have skillsets in wind, lightning, and earth magic as well. Their slogan is to bring life to the world through love, and many mages within these houses will go above and beyond to help society, even if it bends or breaks tradition. Somnum: A group that is calm and believes in a life of beauty and restoration. Some believe the Somnum court to be lazy, though this is not particularly true. Somnum possesses some of the most potent mages, specializing in lightning, water, and ice magic and have mastered the art of hypnosis. Status ailments come ready to these mages, making them unseeming yet deadly adversaries. While it is not required that you are affiliated with a court, I would recommend that, unless you have a specific reason why your character isn't in one of the courts, you are apart of one. The reason for this is the central plot will revolve around members of these courts, and it may take a bit of additional work to get your character into the thick of the main plot without an affiliation. Special note: You are welcome to affiliate yourself with Vivifica, and you do not have to be an antagonist to do so. I will be providing additional information to players who are choosing this court, so that they know what your character knows concerning the court's decisions. Below is a character sheet for you to fill to tell me more about your character(s). There is no character limit at this point, though please only create as many characters as you feel that you can handle. Quick note: I am hoping to get characters affiliated with each court. If it seems that too many characters are in one court and not enough in others, I may close out the possibility to join a specific court. Name: Age: Gender: Appearance: Court affiliation (if any): Weapons: Magic: Personality: Background: And last but not least, here are the rules for this game. Please review them, and if you have questions or are uncertain about something feel free to ask. 1.) No god-modding. 2.) No auto-hitting or mass slaughter. This means if you are battling someone don't make your hit automatically meet its target, but rather have it aimed at a player and they choose whether the attack hits or misses. No mass slaughter means don't kill off a bunch of NPCs without permission. 3.) No meta-gaming. This is particularly important for the layout of The Four Courts. Essentially the players and characters know different things from each other, and it is important for the knowledge of the player not to cross over to the character. Having a character possess knowledge of the player and/or make assumptions based on the player's knowledge is considered meta-gaming, for example. 4.) Go with the plot, and please choose a character that fits well with the world and setting. 5.) Original characters only. If you would like to use a canon character please modify them until they are your own creation, and rather inspired by a canon character. 6.) When in a group of other people, please post after everyone in your group has posted, or within one week from your last post. I don't want anyone to fall too far behind. 7.) Keep everything PG-13, please. 8.) Romance is permitted, but again please remember rating restrictions. 9.) Please don't have invincible characters. While you get to choose whether your character is hit by an attack, don't make them avoid everything or else it seems like god-modding. 10.) Some overpowered characters are acceptable in some circumstances. If you have specific questions please ask. I intend for there to be very powerful characters, along with weaker ones, though if your character is too powerful in a fight I may ask you to tone it down. 11.) All KH13 rules apply. 12.) Please try to post at least once a week, though if you will be away please let me know and we will make arrangements for your characters. Should you remain absent for an extended length of time, I reserve the right to utilize your characters as I deem fit for the RP’s progression. 13.) Have fun! If you know me you will know that I love roleplaying, and that I really enjoy seeing stories unfold and characters grow. I try to find ways to incorporate the entire cast into the plot, though you are also welcome to get creative and build your own story as you go along. I have long-term plans for this roleplay and hope to see it flourish, so please expect a long journey should you come aboard The Four Courts. I will draft up some maps, but I want to make them look nicer than the others that I’ve lazily thrown together for previous adventures. I will try to get these up prior to the start of the game. Current players: High Priestess Mabel (Mystics Apprentice) Ignis Maester: Daruk Mordem (Vaude) Ephraim Myrei (EchoFox23*) Vincent S. Watson (Stardustblade358) - non-magic user Arun Roshan (Stardustblade358) Lev Noirtier (Endless Thundaga) Soren Monroe (Nero Kunivas) Henry Heid (Scrapmaster) Shiroo Chickori (NPC - Mystics) Somnum Maestra: Thea Nero Leviathan (Elrandir) Jari Coriander (Vaude) Mellark Crowe (Mystics Apprentice) Kagura Sumeragi (Saber Lily) Luka Rabbi (Heart of Ferria) Vivifica Maestra: Aislinn Nosferi (Mystics Apprentice) Jynn Venas (Endless Thundaga) Zion (Saber Lily) Richter Vanis (Scrapmaster) Elliot Luxmore (Nero Kunivas) Vallery (rikunobodyxiii) Umbra Maester: Gerik Lockford (rikunobodyxiii) Eclaire De Wynter (Saber Lily) Pali Noirtier (Vaude) Eleanor Le Doux, Fierce Shadow (Nero Kunivas) Arkane Gravemore (Stardustblade358) Morpha Gallant (Endless Thundaga) Indies: Arno Cross (Scrapmaster) Gabriel Woods (Nero Kunivas) Tibarn Llang (Mystics Apprentice) Saffron (HeartofFerria) World Map

    This is late, but... Overworld is special to me. It is one of now three roleplays I have ever truly finished in my years of roleplay, my years of making Characters and working with others. Overworld is the most special to me, because of the characters I've met, and with how my writing and my ability to mold a character who grows and becomes...better. I hope that, in Elrandir's sequel, that we meet again...and hopefully, we end with just as much happiness as now.

    I'm loving the art for Richter. Accepted! I'll eagerly await your third character. Sounds perfect! I think everything else looked great with your character sheet. If at any point you choose in insert Alix you are more than welcome to, or if you wish to make her an NPC (non-playable character) that is completely fine as well. Ah, someone who has tampered with immortality. Very interesting. Accepted! Awesome weapons! Accepted! All accepted! I am very interested in Elliot. I always get curious about characters that leave their court to join another. I'm also increasingly curious what changed in him, and why he was compelled to leave Ignis for Vivifica. Vivifica would welcome any with open arms, though it is an interesting switch. Hopefully more will be revealed over the course of the RP. As for Itika, it is essentially raw mana, which one can certainly harness and channel to their whim. In excess it can be dangerous to the user, and its use can render very powerful forms of magic. There is a reason it is outlawed and a reason it is sought, which will be revealed at a later point. Hope that helps some, but it could certainly be infused with Gabe's sword. The problem is, it wears off over time (it is a consumable), so the effects that it was infused with would eventually fade, unless it were augmented by a talented blacksmith or engineer (looks to @Stardustblade358's Vincent). (And yay, Nergal!) I'm really liking Ardyn Gerik's rectifying manner and that, while manipulative, he still looks much like a protagonist. Since the Umbra court, while specializing in dark arts, is really a shady group of protagonists that want the same thing as everyone else. Now, is his name pronounced with a hard or soft G? Accepted! I look forward to seeing your next addition. (Also, I can't say much about Gerik's appearance, since I've named the land Regalia, and drew inspiration from Ignis and Somnus (originally it was going to be Regalia and the four courts: Ignis, Noctis, Prompto, and Gladiolus. :P) Yay, it's our favorite fox boy! Accepted! My characters are coming soon; I fell asleep last night before I could finish them, though I have two pending backgrounds and at least two others that are still in the works. I'm really liking the cast so far; we have a good amount of variety. I was thinking to allow sign-ups to remain open for a couple of weeks, but in truth I think most people joined that will join (thank you for your support, Overworld crew!), so we might kick this off sooner than later. I do want to take some time to familiarize myself with our cast and develop some starting points for everyone, so that might take a couple of days, but hopefully we can begin within a few days if all is up for it. Also, does everyone prefer Somnus over Somnum for the court name? I've noticed it called Somnus by a few people, and I wonder if it will be more memorable and easier to work with.

    KH3's awful marketing

    I understand what you are saying. I was one of the KH fan camp who I believed they didn't reveal too much of Kingdom Hearts 3. Now after playing Kingdom Hearts 3 a few times, I will say that while they didn't revealed everything of the game's main plot in the trailers, but they definitely gave away most of the cool and exciting scenes in the trailers. In my opinion, they should've never revealed the Anti-Aqua scene in the Frozen trailer, or show off some of the Keyblade Graveyard scenes, and they never shouldn't release the Final Trailer or Final Battle trailer? They gave away most of the exciting scenes that shouldn't been kept a secret so players can surprised when they play the full game on release day. However, I will say the previous Kingdom Hearts games marketing were pretty much the same. They wanted to created the hype so both fans and newcomers to buy the game. Yeah hopefully the next Kingdom Hearts game doesn't make the same mistake like Kingdom Hearst 3. And as for Roxas and Xion? Well I definitely respect that but I'm glad they're back. I think there's some potential to play as Roxas and Xion as the new playable characters in some new Kingdom Hearts games. After all I do want to play other playable characters besides Sora.

    Okay, I am so embarrassed that I didnt realize this sooner but you know how the stained glass place is called 'Station of Awakening'? And where did Sora go when he used the 'Power of Waking'?! Station of Awakening ---- Power of Waking GOD DANG IT!! How did I not see that sooner?

    I honestly tried to avoid watching trailers, because I was quite concerned that too much would be revealed. I also like to be surprised about most of the content in the game, so I don't even like knowing which worlds are coming. I think their marketing tactic was to get people hooked on the game by feeding tidbits of information over the span of years, growing hype so that people would definitely get the game at release. However, I entirely agree and think too much was revealed–and I haven't even seen all of the trailers!

    PLEASE REBLOG, REPOST AND SHARE IF YOU LIKE THE IDEA!!I've been posting this everywhere I can for a the last week or two and people have been pretty on board. I created a tumblr for the idea too if anyone wants to go reblog this from there.Its, 'ThankYouKHTeam'This also isnt the only one I've made. In trying to keep the idea fresh in the tags and peoples feeds, I'm making varriations of the envelopes with different themes. This one is Destiny Trio themed, and I'm gonna try to make a new one every week til the day of to help remind people. Again please share if you like the idea, even if you dont want to participate but like the idea please share. I think it would be so fun to have a sort of KH Community day on twitter.

    Marluxia's role in DDD

    Where does it say his power is sleep other than him using is on Sora that one time in KH3? And where was it said that Marluxia spent many years in the Realm of Dreams? I've never heard of this. The reason Marluxia still is in Organization XIII is due to the Ancient Keyblade Legacy that Xemnas mentioned.

    Rate Kingdom Hearts 3

    It is a very solid 8 out of 10. It's the best Osaka combat, but it's not as good as KH2. Credit where credit is due though, I've recently been playing KH2, and I found myself on multiple occasions dearly missing Attraction Flow, Flowmotion, Keyblade Transformations, and the ability to take photos. KH3 has great emotional moments, but the pacing is terrible, with really the only "important" things happening at the very beginning and the very end. It's not an incomplete game, it's a typical KH game, and I wish people would realize this.

    Gun should need to require maintenance. At least thats how i like to view guns in RPGs, lets not forget misfire chances from D&D. Plus misfire situations can create tension. But backfire situations can create an intense atmosphere. Cause then you cant use your gun and must rely on your others skills.

    I think metal manipulation would be a unique ability. It can be advantageous in some areas, and I trust that it would be used fairly and within reason. I mean, we could also be concerned about our fire mages melting metal and weaponry as well, so I do not see a great difference between those with fire magic and metal manipulation. Metal manipulation is just a little more specific. Saffron is accepted! Also, I am doing research on RPs with guns and a good system to use, and between some articles that I've read (in addition to some great feedback from you guys), I should have a working guideline on that front soon. Essentially it is really going to be up to the player's discretion, but faster bullets will have less accuracy, slower bullets will have more, and there will be a limited amount of ammo that can be used before having to reload your gun. For magical guns, there will be limits to how much ammo you can use before it deteriorates your gun. And there is also the fact that guns would be a ranged weapon rather than a melee one. I'm trying to make it so that there are pros and cons to them. While a gun is very lethal and far faster than any magic spell, I'm trying to balance it so that it has its drawbacks, too. More on that to come soon, I hope. If all goes according to plan, I'm hoping to have this ready to launch this Friday. Does that sound like a good starting time for everyone?

    Yeah, to be honest, I'm not too hyped about the combat. Not because of the fact that it will be in real time as where in the original the combat was turn based. But because of my experience with Final Fantasy XV's real time combat. It was very clunky and just felt a bit decent. It looks like they are using similar ideas for FF7 remake's combat and perhaps (hopefully) improving it to make it more enjoyable. What really makes me hyped about the FF7 remake are the remade scenes from the original game. It will be good to see all these memorable scenes in HD and voiced.

    New KH Worlds

    We never visited 101 Dalmatians's world. I would like to finish off the Aladdin trilogy with King of Thieves and since the movie got a live action, it's about time we re-visited it. Kairi needs to pull her full share now instead of just being the damsel in distress but I also don't want her reduced to being a Mary Sue. She is a new keyblade wielder so she has to earn her way even if means with the help of some of the old POH like Jasmine.

    No thank you. Besides being an obvious ripoff, it just wouldn't work as well. -While Disney characters certainly aren't the most complex characters in fiction, they have a lot of heart (pun not intended), and so they can sell emotional scenes. I just can't picture having a "deep" moment with Spongebob, CatDog, or whatever is on Nick right now. -This crazy Disney/FF crossover was born during a very particular time in the gaming landscape, and has been able to carry that charm & quirkyness (albeit to its own detriment sometimes) throughout the years. If someone were to try and copy this formula, it would come off as gimmicky and unoriginal. I appreciate thought exercises, and I certainly wouldn't stop someone from writing their own fanfiction, but this idea has been flown by with other properties (Loony Tunes, Dreamworks, etc.), but it just doesn't fly. People seem to forget that by all rights Kingdom Hearts should not have worked. It was only through the unique combination of two companies dominating the 90's in their respective fields collaborating (Disney & Square), an up-and-comer looking to prove himself as a director (Tetsuya Nomura), and a videogame landscape still switching to 3D looking for experimentation, that Kingdom Hearts was able to flourish.

    Time Travel Explained

    Time Travel Explained

    We still don't know that much about it to judge. Dream Drop Distance is the most recent KH game (other than Unchained X), so it is too early to judge. Every KH game introduces some sort of concept or new thing in the plot and then relies on the game/games after it to explain it further and to go more in-depth. DDD introduced the concept of time travel, so it's safe to say that what we have been told in DDD is just scratching the surface of time travel and we will most likely have it explained further in KH3 and future KH games. So, I'd hold my judgement until then.

    still NO ONE seems to be able to explain the real LOGIC behind time travel in KH (if there's one ) this explanation is incomplete, first of all we need to know how should we see TIME in the KH universe (and if it is completely unchangeable then time travel is pointless and KH3D plot only happened in an alternative time line, just saying)

    Yeah, you're right about all of that. I think that's why a lot of people don't like the plot and story of Dream Drop Distance. They feel like the entire thing was just plot convenience. I, personally, think that we don't quite have enough information at the current moment to judge on that though. I'm guessing we will learn a lot more about time travel in KH3 (hopefully at least).

    Still not quite sure what you're talking about. Young Xehanort traveled through time to bring many different versions of Xehanort to the present time and use them to form the true Organization 13. Together, they're trying to take the 7 Princesses of Heart. The 7 Guardians of Light are then formed to protect the 7 Princesses. After Xehanort achieves his evil goals, then the 13 seekers of darkness will all go back to their original times.

    I liked this trailer, and I am excited for next month. The combat gameplay looks like a mix of KH and FFXV styles. I can't help but think it feels like the old Versus XIII trailer where it looked as if it was inspired by KH UI. It also looks like you will be able to change who you are controlling by pressing L or R, which is nice. The voices are from the Advent Children cast, I think. I hope we can get some confirmation later. I expect the release date to be by the end of the year, I hope I am right. Anyways! So excited for FFVII Remake!
